OLW110 Squares

I wanted to make another card for OLW110 that used more than one square. A little three-square stamp from an old, old SU set called to me but proved much harder to use than I'd thought. This was my fifth or sixth effort, and I declared it good enough for government work and moved on.

Sometimes, it's the challenges that seem the most straightforward that stump me the most. I suspect my penchant for over-thinking is to blame. Darn that frontal lobe! But I do love the colors here: Versacolor fresh green and lagoon blue.


Now it's almost time for OLW111, which you will find on Karen's blog tomorrow (Wednesday).

stamps: Papertrey Ink (Turning a New Leaf, Botanical Silhouettes), SU (three squares)
ink: Versacolor lagoon blue, fresh green
paper: PTI white
accessories: none


  1. I love this! Love the way the 3 squares balance the flourishes of the happy. Love the colours.

  2. This is lovely! The colors are beautiful. In what instances do you decide to use Versacolor rather than regular ink? Do they ever get blotchy? The leaves on this card look smooth and lovely. Beautiful!

  3. Simple and elegant. I love the colours and the layout.

  4. Great colors and composition. If you hadn't told us it took you several tries, we'd never known. It's like watching a professional athlete: they make it look easy, as do you, but we all come to realize it's not as easy as it looks when we attempt it ourselves.

  5. Those colours look wonderful. I am wondering who made the Happy Birthday stamp. You probably have used it before but I can't remember.

  6. Marg, it's Papertrey ink's Botanical Silhouettes, which is an anniversary set. Not sure if it's available to buy or not. Hope that helps.

  7. Susan, thanks for the information. I had searched their site for that particular set (as you had mentioned it on the card information) but it was not there. So I guess not for sale.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
